Referals are in!

Congratulations to all the families who will be seeing a picture of their child for the first time!!! What a special time of month for all of us who are closely behind following along in this journey of love. As the months pass, this wait gets better and better. Congratulations again!!!

On October 2, 2007, Children's Hope received 12 China referrals.
These referrals were for our 11/28/05 log in date families and our
8/8/06 and 8/29/06 Chinese expedited families. They are 12
beautiful little girls. They are from the Chongqing, Jiangxi and
Shanghai provinces. They range in age from 6.5 to 9 months, and one
2.5 year old (parents requested 2-4 years of age). These families
waited 22 months from log in date to referral. The Chinese
expedited families waited 14 months from log in date to referral.
We expect these families to travel in about 8 weeks.

This group of referrals began with the 11/26/05 log in date, but we
currently do not know the cut off date for this referral group. The
CCAA did not update their web site before leaving for the China
National Holiday (10/1 to 10/8).


As happy as I am for all the parents, I too am sad for all the others. It just seems to be DRAGGING sooooo sloooowly-- uggg!!! We keep hearing about the speed up but im not sure if it is ever going to happen. Every month is the same and I just keep praying for the speed up to be this month but it never is. Maybe when we get into the 2006 referrals-- who knows? Sorry, didnt mean to depress you. I love this time of month but it also makes me sad also-- so you get to hear about it :)

Congratulations, I am so happy for those families.
